    Leave No Trace

    ★★★½

    🎥 Leave No Trace. - 2018. Director - Debra Granik.

    ★★★★★

    📺 Chernobyl - 2019. Director - Johan Renck.

    I haven't reviewed a television show before. Film will always be my first love, but in a time where great TV is more accessible than ever, I feel I should dabble in series reviewing.
    What better place to start than HBO's instant masterpiece 'Chernobyl'. If you are wondering if the show is deserving of the hype - it absolutely, undoubtedly is. The marketing team at HBO and Now TV deserve insane…
